A couple of months ago I mentioned in comments that Google looked like a good short. The next day it got a little haircut but today's visit to the barber was more in line with what I had in mind.
I still think it's a 'long' short but I would have covered at about 50% today.
The company just ain't got nothin' that can't be replicated and the current "tuning" of the "free" search engine has driven me to Teoma as my search engine of choice.
At least this should cheer up Roger.
Btw - I agree with Charlie's take on Google wrt the geopolitics involved - I just don't like it on a personal level.
PS - Do not ask for further investment suggestions - I have both doubled and halved my portfolio from time to time and if I knew which one was going to happen next I'd sleep better.
Do you really need government's permission?
